Development Engineering Manager
Todd joined TowHaul in 1997 while working on a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering at Montana State University (MSU). During this time, Todd had the opportunity to work closely with company founder Frank Smith to tailor his curriculum to meet the needs of TowHaul engineering. He has assisted with several prototype projects and patent support. In 2005, Todd was asked to lead the production engineering team and to work on increasing throughput in the engineering department. By 2010, Todd’s team had almost tripled the number of projects per year going through the engineering department. With the team and processes established, this allowed Todd to put more focus on the development portion of the projects, with a specific emphasis on continuous improvement and standardization of TowHaul products. This led to a new option for a towing design that has since been patented and will soon be available to customers. In 2018, Todd shifted his focus to new product development. When Todd is not in the office, you can find him hiking and hunting in the Montana mountains.
